Description

Americans have been taught that their nation is civilized and humane. But, too often, U.S. actions have been uncivilized and inhumane.
—Howard Zinn


Shedding light on 500 years of suppression, this shocking exposé reveals the pivotal role in American history played by its most invisible minority—zombies.

From colonization and revolution to World Wars and global hegemony, A Zombie’s History of the United States tells the powerful and moving stories of this country’s living-dead underclass, including:

•The zombie massacre of European colonists at Plymouth Rock

•The gruesome killing of a zombinated Meriwether Lewis by his fellow explorer William Clark

•The doomed defense of the Alamo against hordes of the attacking undead

•The heroic, platoon-saving charge into a hail of German fire by an undead Lt. Audie Murphy

•The top-secret NASA missions that launched(and often lost) zombies into space

•The anti-terrorist program to stop the weaponization of the zombie virus
